Pair of Colin Heaney, candlesticks. He is an Australian glass artist who started up his glass works in the 1980s. These are quite impressive in terms of their height and colour. The gold stem and red bowl are created by adding metallic salts while the object is being formed on the punty. Each candlestick has the artist's glass company label on the upper foot and also the his engraved signature and date the article was produced - in this case 1991. Height 30 cms [12 inches] and 9.5 cms diameter at the top. I believe a large U.K. restaurant chain, commissioned Heaney to supply him with these to be placed on their tables. Sadly, he closed down the factory and moved from glass to fabrics.
